Measles Outbreak Hits More Than 100 People in 21 States, Including Indiana
Aug 18, 2018, 02:32
Health officials are continuing to monitor a measles outbreak impacting 21 states, including MI.
In fact, the CDC says there have already been 107 cases reported this year.
There were only 118 cases last year, and only 86 the year before that.
But the Kansas Department of Health and Environment reports in mid spring, the state had 22 cases from an outbreak that started after a traveler brought the virus back from Asia. If it reaches a community where people were also not vaccinated, the disease can spread.
But that is no longer the case, which is why the state is urging people to stay up-to-date on the recommended vaccines. Symptoms typically show up 10-14 days after exposure. It is likely that the number of cases in 2018 will be much more than that. After some time, small red bumps may appear on the flat spots and the fever may spike to 104 degrees.
Measles is a vaccine-preventable respiratory infection that can result in hospitalization, pneumonia, encephalitis and death.
How can you avoid getting measles?
However, outbreaks occur both in developed & underdeveloped countries, often because of unfounded fears and delays in vaccination.
Unvaccinated infants are especially vulnerable to complications of measles, so they are best protected by herd immunity, the CDC advises. The CDC says more than 100 people are reported to have the virus. Two doses are about 97% effective.
